MARIES VALLEY NOW THREATENED The valley of the upper St. Maries is threatened by fire, ac cording to reports received in Spo kane this morning, and all that is needed to bring about a repetition of the Avery-Wallace holacaust is a brisk wind. Seven hundred era proves of the Coour d'Aieue Timber Protective association are fighting the sporadic fires that now exist and it Is only with the greatest dif ficulty that they have kept the flames from spreading up to the present. The whole country is threatened, as there are now small and large fires in almost every part of the district south of the St. Joe.. The homesteaders throughout the threatened district have been warned to leave their homes, but only a small proportion has so far heeded the warning. The fires in the Marble creek district have broken bounds three times so far, but at noon today were under con trol, as there is but a slight wind. The terrible speed of the fire Is hard to realize, but Head Ranger Debbitt has, authoritative state ments of where it went a mile and a half in one jump.
